With graduation in May approaching quickly, UNC’s Campus Y is looking to celebrate the senior members who have been vital to the organization with an End of Year Celebration on April 18 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Campus Y building.
The Campus Y — whose mission is to engage the UNC community to fight and advocate for social justice — is hoping to show appreciation for the dedicated seniors through this annual event.
Though the event will be informal and open to the public, the celebration of the Campus Y seniors will be personal and intimate. Junior Sloan Godbey, the director of finance for Campus Y, said the event is giving the seniors a space to share their final remarks and memories of their work.
“The Campus Y is so centered on student work and student involvement that when seniors come through, it’s always sad to see them go,” Godbey said. “We like to honor them and give them time to reflect back on what they’ve done and give us time to reflect on what they’ve done.”
Junior Meenu Immaneni, the director of membership for Campus Y, said the event will include speeches that are dedicated to a particular senior to emphasize their impact on the organization and the UNC community as a whole, as well as a video to honor those graduating.
